- RHP Jerad Eickhoff (6-1, 4.85) 6 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
- RHP Roel Ramirez (0-2, 4.64) 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K
Eickhoff made his first start since he was designated for assignment and did well, allowing only three extra base hits and one walk.
Ramirez pitched a scoreless seventh inning. In four innings with Syracuse, he now has a 6.75 ERA.
AA: Doubleheader Game 1: Portland Sea Dogs (48-29) 5, Binghamton Rumble Ponies (32-45) 2
- Mark Vientos: DNP
- Brett Baty LF: 1-3, K
- Carlos Cortes RF: 1-3, 2B, 2 K, .270/.329/.517
- Carlos Rincon DH: 2-3
- Jake Mangum CF: 1-3, HR, K
Home runs by Mangum and Luis Carpio weren’t enough to overcome Portland’s four-run rally in the sixth inning in Game 1 of their doublehader.
Vientos didn’t play in either game of the doubleheader after leaving Tuesday’s game early.
Baty played error-free defense in left field and had an infield single in three plate appearances.
Cortes hit his 25th double of the year on a flyball to left field but was stranded on second.
Mangum hit his seventh overall home run of the season and his fifth for Binghamton. It was a fly ball to left field and came as a right-handed batter.

- RHP Connor Grey (2-2, 3.76) 5 IP, 7 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 1 BB, 5 K
Grey had only given up one run through five innings before things came unraveled in the sixth inning. He faced four batters in the sixth and allowed a leadoff double, an infield single, an RBI double, a run-scoring wild pitch, and a walk.
27-year-old right hander Justin Dillon relieved Grey and allowed two inherited runners to score but nothing else in two innings of work.
Game 2: Binghamton Rumble Ponies (33-45) 8, Portland Sea Dogs (48-30) 2
- Mark Vientos: DNP
- Carlos Cortes: DNP
- Brett Baty 3B: 1-3, HR, BB, 2 K, .287/.376/.486
- Carlos Rincon RF: 2-4, HR, 2B, K, .277/.347/.507
- Jake Magum CF: 3-4, K, .248/.296/.406
Strong pitching, a solo homer from Baty, and six RBIs from Rincon led Binghamton to a lopsided win and a doubleheader split.
Baty’s home run was his tenth of the season and his third with Binghamton. He has now hit .229/.321/.414 in 81 plate appearances since being promoted.
Binghamton went into the bottom of the sixth with a two run lead before Rincon blew the game open with a grand slam. He also doubled. In 52 plate appearances since the Mets traded for him, he has hit .340/.365/.680 with four homers, a triple, and three doubles.
Mangum followed his homer in Game 1 with three singles in Game 2. His first was an infield hit, his second was a line drive to right field, and his third was another line drive to right.

- RHP Colin Holderman (0-2, 4.50) 1.1 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K
Beggs had one of his better outings of the season. He hadn’t allowed any runs or extra base hits through five innings but gave up a two run shot in the sixth inning.
A+: Hudson Valley Renegades (52-28) 3, Brooklyn Cyclones (30-48) 2
- Francisco Alvarez PH: 0-1, K, .271/.396/.518
- Ronny Mauricio SS: 1-3, SF, K, .244/.281/.445
- Jaylen Palmer CF: 1-2, 2 BB, SB, .274/.378/.381
Brooklyn’s offensive struggles against Hudson Valley’s pitching staff continued, managing only three singles and two runs.
Mauricio’s hit was a line drive single to center field. It came as a left-handed batter.
Palmer had himself a very nice game, getting on base three times and stealing his first base since being promoted to Brooklyn. His first Brooklyn hit was a line drive to right field.
Palmer also shows off the wheels, taking second base with ease putting himself into scoring position. First hit and first stolen base at the High-A level come in the bottom of the third. pic.twitter.com/jUmmaUTcxq
